Share your Widget Desktop
You might have seen the new Desktops and Sharing menus already:
We are happy to announce that we added a new feature to Widgetop. Now you can share your desktop and let your friends or even anybody else access it and see your widgets. Of course your settings are safe because a shared desktop can’t be modified by the viewers, only by yourself.
How to share your desktop:
- You need to sign in to your desktop (or create an account if you don’t have already) because you can only share your personal desktop.
- Click the Sharing menu (with you current sharing status) and click the Share button.
- Enter the title, the description and whether you want to share your desktop privately or publicly. A public desktop is included in our desktops directory and can be found by searching for title and description. A private desktop is only accessible by knowing its unique desktop id. and can be further protected by an optional password.
- Press Save and you can see the links to your shared page on the overview screen.

Similar to our widgets gallery you can find the newest and most popular desktops, access them alphabetically by title or search them by title and description.
Happy Sharing and impress us and all other Widgetop users with your widget desktops!
